Appleton Road, Cumnor, OXFORD, OX2 9QH
The Bear offers an appealing mixture of traditional atmosphere and contemporary design. Masses of artwork on cool green walls in the dining room, offset the roughcast stone, and forward-thinking menus offer trend-conscious British food. Grilled mackerel with mussels, potato salad, puréed spinach and spring onion dressing gets things off to a fine start, perhaps followed by braised pig's cheek and belly with celeriac fondant in apple jus. A more traditional French note is sounded in fried lamb's kidneys with pancetta in sherry dressing, or in classic coq au vin. Stay on the French track for dark chocolate and orange soufflé with Grand Marnier Chantilly.
